I was wondering if anyone knows how well the Intel HD 2000 performs on a desktop when watching Blu-Ray movies. Also, I know GPUs integrated into the motherboard can be "replaced" with a discrete card, but can this CPU-based GPU be "replaced" with a discrete card?

Blu-ray would work fine, the HD2000 should have the decoder, and the SB CPU would do it smoothly regardless.

You can add an discrete card as long as you have a free X16 slot, but it won't be much worth it unless youre gaming or a media junkie.

The Intel HD 2000 should be good enough for Blu-Ray playback.

If necessary the HD 2000 can be disabled somewhere in the BIOS if you feel it would be better to install a video card.
